This Apeks XTX 40 and XTX 40 octopus three stage regulator set provides a value for money way of getting started with a new Apeks regulator rig.
The Apeks XTX primary regulator is a fully balanced system using a diaphragm first stage that delivers a high air flow that doesn't reduce at depth or as your cylinder pressure falls. The first stage as four low pressure and two high pressure ports to support full year round UK diving. An environment seal provides additional protection against the cold and also contamination. The XTX second stage provides a consist, reliable flow or air with additional free flow protection using a venturi lever, inlet heat exchanger and a specially design front cover.
The XTX 40 octopus uses all the same great features and performance of the primary but with high visibility front cover and trim as well as a longer yellow braid octopus hose.

Apeks XTX40 Plus XTX40 Regulator Set - Features
?This feature allows the diver to adjust the inhalation setting from the set level and increase the effort required to open the 2nd stage valve to deliver air.
?The venturi control affects how air flows in the 2nd stage. In it's positive position the flow of gas creates a vacuum against the diapragm, helping to open the valve. In it's negative position it will divert gas back against the diaphragm helping to close the valve. It is basically used to help prevent free flowing.
|Cold Water Rated|
?Cold water has adverse effects on regulators and can cause some to freeze so each regulator combination must be tested during manufacturing for their performance in different water temperatures.
Cold water is defined by EN250 as below 10°C. If a regulator combination cannot meet the performance standards below 10°C then they are only suitable for warm waters.
EN250 / (EN250A >10°C)
To pass the regulator must provide at least 62.5 L/min of air at 50M depth above 10°C.
|Cold & Warm Water|
?Environmentally sealed 1st stages offer greater protection against freezing when diving in cold water (below 10 degrees C)
Scubapro have a new method of cold water proofing their first stages called the eXtended Thermal Insulating System or XTIS which still allows water into the first stage but the internal parts that come into contact with the water are coated to prevent ice from forming.
?Unbalanced regulators are affected by the pressure in the cylinder, becoming slighty harder to breathe from when the pressure starts to drop.
Balanced regulators are not affected by the cylinder pressure or depth.
Over-balanced regulators achieve unprecedented performance by increasing your air supply the deeper you go providing the best breathe for deep divers.
|High Pressure Ports|
?High pressure ports supply the pressure gauge and wireless transmitters for dive computers
|Low Pressure Ports|
?Low pressure ports supply the 2nd stages and inflator hoses
?All regulators need to be serviced to keep them in working order as the parts inside them age and wear over time and with use. Most regulators need to be serviced once a year or after 100 dives with normal recreational use to replace parts and re-balance.
Some regulators use more modern materials or mechanisms that allow them to extend the servicing interval that can save you some money in the long run.
|2 Year - Annual Inspection|
|Weight in Grams (approx)|
?The weight includes the first stage (DIN fitting), hose and second stage.
